Another Gyros

Cuisine: Greek
Type: Lamb
Serves: 6 people

Recipe Ingredients

2 lbs 908g / 32ozLean ground lamb
1   Onion - grated
2   Homemade bread - toasted and
1 teaspoon 5mlFresh savory - chopped
  Salt - to taste
1 teaspoon 5mlAllspice - crushed
  Freshly ground pepper - to
1 teaspoon 5mlCoriander seed - crushed
1   Garlic - pressed
  Bacon slices - (optional)

Recipe Instructions

In large bowl, combined all ingredients. Mix well, kneading until mixture is stiff. Make fingers of meat (about 5-inches longer and not over 2-inches in diameter). Place fingers on skewer spacing about 1-inch apart. Cook over hot coals for 10 to 15 minutes, turning frequently until cooked through.

You may wrap the "fingers" on the skewer with sliced bacon. If anyone tries this, let me know how it works out.

NOTE: I have this frequently in Greece and here in the U.S., but as I have said, I view it as a "deli" item. Krinos Foods has a "gyros kit" that is sold in the frozen food section of some supermarkets.
